Speaker: Bryan Butler
Introduce yourself! What is your role and how long have you been with ACI Learning?
Hey, my name is Brian and I'm one of the instructor mentors with AC I learning. I've been here with AC I for about 14 months now and I'm excited to play a role in your journey.
What can I expect from meeting with Instructor/Mentors?
Well, you can expect to meet with subject matter experts that will help support you and really hone in and understand some of those tougher concepts that come up. The team has a lot of wisdom and knowledge to share from their own experiences and background in it.
What is the difference between the 1:1 and open mentor sessions?
Here at AC I learning, we offer open mentor sessions and one on one sessions. The open mentor sessions are a great place to drop in and ask questions and where you'll likely find other students already discussing it concepts. And I personally think this is a great opportunity because one might hear questions asked in ways that they may not have or even thought of before. For the one on one sessions, they're better suited to get individual attention. So be sure to bring a list of 3 to 5 questions or topics that you wish to discuss.
This feels like a lot of information. How can I keep up and be successful?
First off. No, you're not alone in this. We're here to support you. And it's not uncommon to feel that way. At some point in time, I view it like 1000 piece puzzle box. You dump it on the table, you start flipping over the pieces and you may not see how it all fits together right away. But I can give you some general pointers first, let your friends and family know what you're doing and that it's important to you so that they can work with you then set up study times that fit with your current schedule. Also work with your peers. There's nothing, there's nothing else like working with your classmates and they can be a wonderful source of motivation and help. And of course, let us know what you're experiencing and meet with the mentor team.
